IMMY OWUSU

Immanuel Kwabena Dreessens-Owusu is a multi-instrumental songwriter, known primarily as the former drummer for young indigenous powerhouse Yirrmal and surf coast indie-rockers Children Of The Sun. In 2016 he went over to West Africa to study with his grandfather Koo Nimo, a highly renowned Ghanaian High-Life musician, who taught him to play the Afro styles of Dagomba and Palm Wine Hi-Life. He returned from Ghana with a quirky new brand of Afro roots-rock; a sticky mess of blues rock, roots-rock reggae and Afro Hi-Life.
